Mastering: Active Directory for Windows Server 2008

File Size: 9.43 Mb

As I contemplate what I am going to say in this introduction, I find myself thinking, “Why would I want to buy this book?” And the first thing that comes to mind is a conversation I had with my acquisitions editor Tom Cirtin over the summer. We were discussing the upcoming release of Windows Server 2008 and an update to the Mastering Active Directory book. Just as we have done in the past with this book, we went the route of an all-inclusive Active Directory book rather than highlighting just the changes or new features that Windows Server 2008 brings to the table.

This book is a labor of love. I really do enjoy going through the new material and learning what I can do with an operating system. And I didn’t have to go through all of it myself. Truth be told, I am not qualified for some of this, especially the scripting section. C+ programming courses in college told me that I am not a programmer or a scripter; I dreaded those courses. On the front of this book there are three authors listed: Brad Price, John Price, and Scott Fenstermacher. We divided up the chores, with Brad and me writing the core of the book, which includes the designing, planning, managing, and troubleshooting sections, while Scott’s scripting expertise was being applied to the final section on scripting.
